About this album

Hailed as being one of the most innovative new industrial bands Angelspit return with a new album Hideous and Perfect, a confronting audio visual statement set to corrupt listeners the world over.

Hideous and Perfect promises to be Angelspit’s darkest release to date with its sonic textures ranging from hard pounding beats, to organic atmospheric samples, topped off by a feverishly powerful male and female dual vocal assault. The duo’s sonic exploration and creative process took them out of the studio, as they recorded much of the album’s pounding industrial percussion at an abandoned shipping yard in Sydney Harbour. They fashioned and sampled handmade acoustic and electronic instruments, imparting a unique organic sonic texture to Hideous and Perfect, while also giving a nod to the experimental roots of industrial music.

Hideous and Perfect is a vicious concoction of industrial guitar riffs, clever hooks and pathologically disturbed synths. Consisting of 12 harsh, heavy and deliberate tracks set to self destruct, Hideous and Perfect is challenging as it is catchy.
The cyber punk track Ditch the Rest opens the album, with its crunching malicious guitars and aggressive percussion setting the dynamic for the rest of the album. Cold Hard Cash follows combining deceptively sweet vocals with grinding rhythms and anarchic synth melodies. The tracks range from the hypnotic pounding analogue hell of Sleep Now, to the elegantly deranged Let Them Eat Distortion and to Fuck the Revolution’s brutal and unforgettable rock and roll trip to insanity.

    Yeah, same here. At first I was less than impressed and thought it was irritating. Now I like most of it...strange.

    A secret research was conducted, on what exactly it is that gets me addicted to the point of ridiculousness. Hidden and Dangerous is the result of this very reseach. True story.

    This "record" (does that word even apply anymore?) is part of beautiful and vicious and listenable chaos that any human will ever create. I'm enraptured so far. I can't stop listening to Hyperlust and I bounce back to the other tracks if I need a break, so that I can hear the other noise.
